Review Board was never intended to work with Subversion repository paths
that point to a subdirectory. Repositories should always point to the root
of the repository, because RBTools and the New Review Request page are
going to try to generate paths that are relative to the root of the
repository. That's how those ended up with the extra "trunk" in the path a
couple of times.
It looks like you have a mix of changes on your server that either have the
right path or the wrong path. I don't know why it would have worked before
but not now, but we've fixed a large number of Subversion issues since
1.6.x, and rewrote the Subversion backend, so perhaps there's a behavioral
change somewhere. I'd have to know more about how those particular changes
were posted to really help diagnose that.
The right thing to do here is to switch the repository URL to not point to
a subdirectory. However, that will break existing review requests. So what
I'd recommend is archiving the current repository entry (and keeping the
path as-is), and then adding a new repository entry pointing to the root of
the server, and give it the same name. RBTools and the New Review Request
page will do the correct thing, and you won't have this sort of issue going
That won't fix existing review requests, though. For that, either the
database entries would need to be updated to point to the correct path, or
a patch to Review Board would need to be written that tries to remove that
duplicate information when normalizing the path, for misconfigured
